Land-based salmon production
  • Several dozen companies are working on plans for land-based salmon farms both in Norway and elsewhere, especially in the United States and Asia.

  • The strong interest is due to high salmon prices, limited opportunities for more sea production and better and cheaper technology for land-based production.

  • Atlantic Sapphire is building a large facility located outside Miami, Florida. Its first fish will be slaughtered in the second half of 2020.

  • In Norway, there is so far only a small plant, Fredrikstad Seafood.
